  • My dear sweet Mother, as you wished I was there by your side when you took your last breath. I didn’t want to let you go but it was the right thing to do. God was calling you home and did not want you to suffer anymore. You were my best friend and when you left you took a piece of my heart. What an amazing woman and mother you were. I will never forget you and you will always be with me in my heart. I will wrap my arms around you when I see you again. May you Rest In Peace.

    Your loving daughter, Kate

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with your family in these difficult times. The world lost a loving, compassionate, giving woman who always put others before herself. The kindness she embodied and gave to everyone she met is something we should all strive for and heaven will embrace her with open arms.
